This absolutely beautiful Richard Lipp & Sohn ‘2 Crown’ Concert Upright Piano has just been released from our piano restoration workshop in Norwood.
This magnificent handmade instrument was manufactured in the Richard Lipp & Sohn Piano factory in Stuttgart, Germany during the peak of the European piano industry and German manufacturing. Richard Lipp & Sohn pianos are considered to be one of the most prestigious pianos ever made and these high-quality vintage examples are now becoming rare and extremely sought after.
The internal structure of this piano is of the highest quality and comprises a full gold-plated iron frame, quality overstrung design and handmade, solid timber playing action. From a structural and mechanical perspective, this piano is far more superior than any modern piano you could purchase today.
The beautiful cabinet reflects the classic styling of the time and is hand carved from European figured Walnut, a timber that is now extremely rare. The cabinet is largely original and is in excellent condition. We have removed and repolished all brasswork and applied a protective furniture wax over the entire wooden exterior.
The internal structure and mechanism of the piano has been restored to our usual high standard. The mechanism has been completely rebuilt including all new centre pins, bridle tapes, springs and felts where required. A brand new set of high-quality German ‘Abel’ natural wool hammers and dampers has been installed (see photos listed showing the mechanism). To finish, the piano has been fully regulated, serviced and tuned to concert pitch.
The original ivory and ebony keyboard is in excellent condition with no chipped or damaged keys. The keyboard felts have been replaced and the keyboard completely levelled for a smooth playing experience. The original solid brass candelabra are still in amazing condition and are a lovely feature of the piano.
This piano was originally sold by Allan’s Music Store in Melbourne and has the original locking key with it. The previous owner was a family in Toorak Gardens and the piano had been passed down through three generations. It has been extremely well maintained with annual tuning and servicing as well regular oiling and polishing of the cabinet.
This lovely Richard Lipp & Sohn ‘2 Crown’ piano has a warm tone typical of a high-quality piano from this era and is suitable for pianists of all levels, from beginner to advanced. Give your home a unique feature piece that will only appreciate in value as vintage pianos of this quality become rarer and more collectable. It is a delightful ‘forever’ piano that can be passed down to future generations.
